just out of curioisty - why did you use an ND grad filter? what effect does it have/how would the pictrue have been without it?

ND grads basically tone down an area of the image, in this case the sky, reducing it's light by up to 2 stops of light. This evens up the differences in light between land and sky, resulting in more detail in both. Without it, it would be harder, if not impossible, to get detail in both the sky and the land, so you'd either get the land exposed ok and the sky washed out, or the sky exposed ok and the land area too dark.

A lovely shot Miles, is that warm glow a combination of the 81B and Velvia or did they just enhance the glow from a low Sun?

Thankyou for all the comments. This one has been sat on my hard drive for a while as I always feel a little guilty about it. I got to Kimmeridge a little earlier, and had set up my camera on a tripod waiting for the light to be just right. As I was sat there another chappie turned up with a big Large Format camera and waited patiently for me to take my shot...and waited...and waited...

Unfortunately I wanted to stay there and keep shooting from there til long after sun set (My EC 'Moonlighting' is from the same evening and that was taken in near darkness)so I told him that I intended to stay til late, would he like me to move my camera so he could get the shot etc...

By the time he'd set up, focussed, mucked around with this huge camera...he stood up to click the shutter, just as the sun slid below the horizon.

So, if by any chance you are reading this...sorry.

Beautiful image Miles, really well composed. I love the moving water in the foreground, excellent

okay, but how do you choose or set what part of the picture you want to tone down? And how much is "one stop of light" ? thanks for the help so far at least Smile

The grad filters are small sheets of plastic, which in the case of ND Grads, are grey at one end fading out to clear at the other. A 'soft' ND Grad filter is where the transition from grey to clear is very gentle, where as on a 'hard' grad the transition is quite sudden. In this case it was obvious to me that the sky was much lighter then the ground, so to keep both exposed ok, the sky needed to be toned down. It is easier to tone things down then to brighten them up, so the obvious solution is to filter across the sky.

For an explanation about F stops see HERE. Easier way to put it is that it's a standard measurement of light in photographic terms!

Perfect. All the element to make a great picture in the right place. What makes this a winner for me is the way you have perfectly timed/captured the waves on the RHS. Love it. Send us more.

Interest thought the shot stunning sky stretching in to the distance and the warm glow on the rocks near the foot of the shot also like the movement that is added with the water crashing on to the shore line
Lovely work Miles

Another quality addition to the Kimmeridge collection Miles.
PS I think I know the guy you mean with the Large Format gear as I have seen him there too - he had a red blackout cover for it- if that makes sense! -steve

I didn't look that closely Steve as I had a sneaky feeling that he wasn't going to get set up in time, so I was trying very hard NOT to look

Thankyou Mavis, you are very kind, good to hear from you again.

Wonderful light and great use of the rocks to lead into the image. A lovely image that would do well as a calendar shot or for any number of other uses.
